R. J. Loveall Slain and Robbed
Near R. I. Williams Place
R. J. Loveall, a 44-year-old cattle buyer, was found shot to death Wednesday afternoon in a pasture south of the Williams’ ranch, seven miles south of Caddo, east of Armstrong 2 miles.
Sheriff Taylor and other officers are looking for a man of 24 years, heavy set, who was seen with Loveall a few hours before his body was found. It seems that the young man had Loveall go with him to buy a few red cows, in Loveall’s pickup. They went to the pasture and inquired of some stock.
Loveall’s dead body was discovered dead some two hours later, with a bullet hole in the back of his head.
Loveall was known to carry quite a bit of money with him as he paid for cattle with cash. His pockts were empty and his pickup gone when found.
Loveall was known in Caddo and was a good citizen. He lived near Durant.
